I didn't know Officer Pomales but today I participated in The Heroes Ride, a bike ride in Montgomery, TX organized by the Texas Wheels of Justice, which raises awareness about Police Officers being killed in the line of duty. Every rider wore the name of one officer who has paid the ultimate price.

I wore Officer Pomales' name on the 50 mile ride and I'm glad I could honor his memory in this very small way.
